The spirit of Brazil meets luxury and extravagance at Pampas in the heart of downtown Palo Alto. Here, the authenticity of the Brazilian churrasco comes to a modern dining emporium where impromptu gatherings, romantic rendezvous? and large corporate events feel at home. On the plate, smoke meets spice, rusticity finds Moresophistication, tradition is re-imagined. Simply prepared meats are spit roasted to juicy perfection and sliced tableside without limit. Sample the array alongside one of our mixologist?s freshly muddled seasonal cocktails or a choice vintage selected by our sommelier. Take in the side bar, brimming with seasonal vegetables, fresh salads and artisan cheese; and watch our servers round the room with simply prepared meats, spit roasted to juicy perfection and sliced tableside without limit. At Pampas, we invite you to sit back, indulge and watch. Every meal is a show.

  • Rating: 4.0 out of 5"by Emily Z. at Yelp User Review4/12/2014I'm torn on how to review Pampas. On one hand, the idea of a never-ending all meat buffet for $44 isn't all that bad considering the quality of the food. On the other, we didn't really walk away feeling completely satisfied with our meal.First off, the filet mignon is a must; it was definitely the highlight of the rodizio … More
